LI Affiliate membership

Whether you’re starting your journey towards a professional qualification in landscape, or you’re looking for industry knowledge and insight, affiliate membership can raise your awareness of current issues, ideas, and training, and give you the support you need.

Our affiliate membership is there to support the wider industry of landscape-related professionals – whether you’re a landscape assistant or a parks professional. By joining our affiliate network, you’ll become part of a community of more than 5,500 professionals whose disciplines range from landscape architecture, masterplanning, urban design, and garden design, to parks, place making, and countryside management.

Affiliate membership will keep you up to date with information on the state of the industry and important policy changes, and give you access to and support from a wide network of landscape professionals.

Most importantly, you’ll get FREE access to LI Campus (excludes Premium content) and the LI’s online CPD days, plus member discounts on premium LI events and masterclasses. LI Campus includes a wealth of resources covering archive CPD events, conferences, and other events straight to your home, so you can keep ahead of the curve with your professional development.

Campus was created by the Landscape Institute (LI), the UK professional body for landscape professionals, with the help and support of our sponsors. Together, we wanted to offer high-quality educational content to landscape professionals around the world. 

The Campus video library includes sessions from all of the LI’s CPD days, conferences, and other events since 2016, and we have big plans to add much, much more – from us and from other leaders in the sector.

Affiliate members get FREE access to Campus (excluding Premium content) so you can stay ahead with your CPD.

As members, you’re part of a vast network of landscape professionals in a breadth of roles across the sector. You can search our member directory, which contains over 5,500 listings of individuals across the industry.

You can also access our extensive case studies directory for inspiration and ideas that you can incorporate into your own work, or help you find like-minded collaborators.

Our branches are at the heart of the work we do. We have 12 regional LI branches across the UK, plus one for international members. As a member, you can join your local branch, attend branch events, and get updates on activities in other branches. You can also vote for your local branch committee and nominate yourself as a general committee member. Find out what’s going on in your area.

Keeping up to date with your own professional development and staying ahead with current practice is important for all professionals in the landscape sector. That’s why all LI members get member-only pricing on LI events, including CPD courses and other training. We hold regular webinars to keep you connected, as well as offering business and professional guidance and valuable professional development content from industry experts.

We offer discounted rates on insurance services, free legal advice, and a pension scheme. If you work for an LI Registered Practice, they can receive a free initial consultation and preferential rates through McParland Finn, the LI’s preferred insurance broker. Visit the dedicated LI Insurance webpage for more details.

All LI members get exclusive access to bespoke Firestarter courses on ‘Better Business Development’, ‘Practical Business Planning’ and ‘Building a Winning Team’ .

(N.B. If your employer is an LI Registered Practice, they can get 50% off the cost of your Affiliate membership.)

The quarterly Landscape Journal provides in-depth insight into the issues at the forefront of landscape practice, and the innovative solutions the industry is taking to tackle them.

Each member receives a copy of the LI Journal and has access to a range of policies and documentation. We also offer discounts on JCLI contracts. Our resource base allows you to find out more on our technical guidance, policy statements and general publications.
